I was completely awed by the excellent musicianship, composition, and production of this album.

Where silence of music will be crashed by arrow of words & door of human mind cage will be melted by the passion of words.

This is the last (so far) Eloy album, and I can honestly say that this is what Eloy's all about!

First, though the album is called Ocean 2 it is not a sequel to Ocean from 1977. In an interview Frank Bornemann said he considered the subtitle "The Answer" to be the main title as the lyrics don't deal with the story of Atlantis or other related subjects. However, the lyrics that Frank wrote for Ocean 2 must be some of the most poetic, beautiful and profound he has ever written. But lyrics would be nothing without great music. Fortunately Bornemann and Co. deliver great music too!!!

Between Future and Past opens the album and one inmediately notices that this is something special. This song-introduction reminds us of Eloy's earlier works like Planets, Colours or the aforementioned Ocean.

Next track Ro Setau must be the most innovative and awesome song Eloy has written in many years. A typical Eloy atmosphere and feel dominates the whole song. The song starts off quite dark but when the whole band comes in Michael Gerlach's synths turn the light on. Synths and keyboards are really up front in the mix and are really present throughout the song. Frank's guitar is also very present, though no solos this time, but still the power of his playing is one of the most charactersitic Eloy features. Never mind, what about Klaus Peter Matziol? His bassplaying really shines in this song and the whole record. When the female chorus kicks in his bass really "dances" and drives the song, through an excellent crescendo, to its climax. Here Frank's guitar delivers all the power required. Just then an awesome keyboard solo by old band mate Hannes Folberth takes the leading role (one of the best keyboard solos in the history of Eloy, reminiscent of Illuminations track from Colours) On top of that Gerlach adds a couple of moogs to give the song the scope it deserves before the end.

When I first learned that Eloy were going to release Ocean 2, I was very excited. Being an Eloy fan for more than 20 years, and although I love all their albums, even the synthesizers drenched eighties, I always had a hope that they would return to their more epic/symphonic oriented roots.
When I first listened to Ocean 2, I was slighty disappointed, for a muscial sequel to Ocean it is not..and to be fair, musically not even Eloy themselves can top Ocean.
But after a second listen I was hooked, for Ocean 2 is also a masterpiece.
Although it has a modern feel, less commercial and mellower than Destination/RA period, Eloy return to their epic song writting.
There is still a lot of backing vocals, similar to Metromania period, and The Answer is a choral rock epic in the same vein as the last two, on Destination and The Tide Return Forever, but overall the music is more complex, very melodic and full of power.
Ocean 2 is a prime example of a creativitry that is still flowing from the very talented Frank Bornemann, and you have to give him all the credit for still writing and composing songs that are what progressive rock is all about.

Although I prefer the original Ocean from 1977, this 1998 sequel isn't bad at all. Of course if you're a fan of the original Ocean like I am, don't expect it to sound like a clone of the original, you might be disappointed. I had my suspicions when I bought this disc, as I'm sure many others had, after all, there are so many prog bands out there that rightfully remained silent in the 1980s, only to reunite in the 1990s and give us some truly embarassing, pale, or uninspired stuff in an attempt to recapture their past glory. I'm glad Eloy didn't fall in to that trap. The production and sound of Ocean 2 is modern, digitally recorded. Definately not recommended to those prog rock fans who are anti-modern and like everything analog. But even so, the biggest surprise is the use of analog synths here! I hear my share Minimoog, some string synths, and even a little clavinet. Digital synths are also used, but hardly ever detracts from the music. By this time, Eloy was back to being a full band, thanks to Frank Bornemann, old-time member Klaus-Peter Matziol, Bornemann's late '80s/early '90s partner Michael Gerlach, and ex-Michael Schenker Group drummer Bodo Schopf. The reason I took a star off was I thought the end part of the CD dragged on a little (particularly "The Answer"), but eventually that no longer bothered me. Apparently, Eloy's previous label, SPV, rejected Ocean 2, so they moved on to a totally unlikely label: GUN (Great Unlimited Noise) whose specialty seems to be speed/thrash/death metal, so having a prog band on that label is truly strange company. So never mind the label Eloy was recording for this disc, if you're a prog rock fan, and you don't mind a more modern twist in your music, and you like vintage synths, you're sure to love this one.

When you listen to creation of eloy you must drawn yourself Into its imagination. Oceans of instinct fears and initial thoughts. Where silence of music will be crashed by arrow of words & door of human mind cage will be melted by the passion of words. F.Bornemann doesn't make music he creates a performance like always. His albums never gets to at once it is like the hammer down to the nails of your mind. When you sense the blossoms you wont be able to resists not to sense it again
